the constitution says they have to have a defense that we can't afford apparently? i met yesterday with maryland district court judges, about eight of them, and they raised this issue as one of critical importance and one of the judges, a reagan appointee, was obviously very animated at how we were undermining the very essence of the judicial system. surely no one on this floor intends to do that. at the defense department 650,000 vifflian workers are already -- civilian workers are already being furloughed two days a month. that's an effective cut and pay by 20%. the hardworking people whom we rely to maintain the national security of our country. on july 2 i visited with pax ian defense works from and talked with those who were forced to stay at home without pay. they were concerned about their family's finances but, mr. speaker, these hardworking and patriotic public servants were far more worried about support for our troops on the field on friday when many are forced to stay at home. they can't legally come to work and volunteer their time. the sequester is hurting morale and putting our na
. budgetary time of austerity, w.i.c. was included in the across-the-board cuts in defense and discretionary programs under sequester. snap was excluded because it's a entitlement like social security and medicare. but w.i.c. was included in the sequester because it is an sniment. as if the cuts in sequester weren't bad enough, the house agriculture appropriations bill now cuts the program even further by more than $500 million. the 7.3% cut to w.i.c. in this bill could result in over 200,000 pregnant mothers and infants losing nutritious food. even factoring in the reserve fund, 55,000 moms and kids will go without nutrition that they need. it is sad that the republican-controlled house of representatives is cutting vital health and development programs for pregnant and nursing mothers and their very young children, while at the same time they find billions of dollars to send overseas in a wasteful war in afghanistan. madam speaker, during my series of end hunger now speeches, there's been one unifying theme i believe puts us on the path to end hunger now. that theme is presidential leaders

. they called at this time national defense education act. it was all about america's defense. and what they said was, we will loan money to student loans across -- students across america to go to college. i think that their rationale was sound. if more americans went to college and got educated we would have the engineers and scientists we need to make this a strong nation from a defense point of view and from our economy point of view. so i thank the russians for launching sputnik and i thank the congress for creating the national defense education act because a kid from east stlooth st. louis, illinois, whose parents had eighth grade educations had a chance to go to college and he's standing here today in the united states senate. it was a good deal, too. the national defense education act said you don't have to pay it back until after you graduate, ten equal payments at 3% interest. i remember these because i was frightened to death in 1969 when i finished law school and added up all my student loans and they said to me you owe $8,500. i went home to my wife and i said we're doomed

passed important legislation, the defense appropriations bill. this bill prohibits furloughs on employees serving our department of defense in fiscal year 2014. these employees are now in their third week of furloughs. this week we heard from undersecretary of defense comptroller bob hale about the adverse impacts which are expected to worsen if furloughs continue. his message made clear the harm furloughs have already had on our force readiness. mr. wittman: he echo what had i am hearing from my constituents who i talk to on a daily basis. these people are dispointed and frustrated they cannot support the war fighter and are fearful of an unknown future. while it may be too late for the 11 days of furlough through september, congress has the opportunity, and i believe the obligation, to get this important provision, prohibiting furloughs, signed into law as soon as possible. and i urge the senate to join the house in passing this important measure. and with that, mr. speaker, i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back the balance of his time. for what purpose does t

number or superior to remain. you adopt a defensive strategy. and this will work for you for a reason that's really important. we don't have to win. they have to win. as long as we don't lose, we win. and that's what happens. we never really when the war. they just decide to give up. you know, at the end of the war on the trees and there's over 3,000 british troops still in north america. but they just decided to leave. washington learns this lesson and some of 1776 or the thought process that leaves at the the lesson is that at that time to the it's hard for him to accept this. a potentially, he does. and if you think about it, many of the great generals in world history are losers. hannibal, napoleon, robert e. lee rommel. washington was not a good general. he lost more battles than he won. but he was a winner. he was a winner because of his resilience and the insight he had at the strategic level. i think my time is kind of up. i will end with one somewhat controversial question or statement. when the war in iraq was ratcheting up, i got a call from one of the hotbeds of the l.a. t
the secularists. now, the military as well as other state institutions has been on the defensive. this new alignment may not be any more stable or lasting. it is also important to say the current alliance with the secular opposition is anti- brotherhood. it is not anti-islamist. the party supported the removal of morsi and has exerted its influence in the new transition by vetoing the cabinet choices. my second point is that we should really reserve judgment. on the patht egypt towards democracy or not. on the positive side of the ledger, the military is not exerting control directly but has put civilians out front. they put in place a cabinet. addition to that, i would say another positive sign is that the new transition roadmap puts the rewriting of the constitution before the holding of new parliamentary and presidential elections and this a flaw in the first transition. the fact that they held this before the first time. they are dominating the process and is quitting others. on the negative side of the ledger, the way in which the democratic process was set aside on july 3 is troublin
. 30 days' written notice of the charges against them, give them the 30 days to put together a defense, or to offer their version of the facts, that's all that was required. and then we could have fired them. or put them on administrative leave without pay. that was in the discretion of g.s.a. so when g.s.a. tells mr. kelly they can't do anything, there's plenty they could do. they could have taken both those employees, put them on administrative leave without pay, talk about protecting the taxpayer, i'm for that, they had the power to do that in these cases. they could have taken both those employees under current law with due process in place, put them both on administrative leave without pay, and we could have protected the taxpayer. that was a discretion on the part of the administration and the folks that made the decision in that place. it was not the fault of the law. but interestingly enough it also protected us to have the second version of the facts put forward to bring more light -- mr. cummings: i'm going to allow mr. lynch to close in the 45 seconds we have left. mr. lynch
